A tough start to the walk
We spent most of the day walking in thick gloopy extremely slippery mud, which made the ascents and descents very tricky.
The end of our day was meant to be at Passo di Viamaggio but the only hotel is closed on a Tuesday so we had to carry on to St Stefano.
Where we found a room at a hotel which goes by many different names but today it’s hotel Santo Stefano a souless place to say the least.
The best thing about today was the glorious all day sunshine and the fact we both arrived in one piece after walking over such slippery mud, something I would not have been able to do without my walking poles !
Tomorrow will be a shorter day and I hope the gloopy mud is now behind us.
Some pictures of the day are here
that mud must have been horrible but glad you got through it O K ..hope it better from now on …ENJOY YOURSELVES….
Yep dad the mud was awful but hopefully there will be no
Oh gosh, they’ve certainly had some weather in Italy lately, haven’t they? I remember how hard gloopy mud is to walk in from our long walk. Hope you get a better surface today. And enjoy the sunshine xx
Yes Gina it was that thick gloopy mud you know and walking on it all day was very hard 🙁
